1963 Ford Thunderbird ThunderbirdUp for your consideration this week is a 1963 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster Tribute Car. Since Ford only made 455 Sports Roadsters in 1963 this might be your last chance to snatch one up.
This Thunderbird has had a considerate amount of work and money invested to the car. The car has a rebuilt 1972 351 Cleveland motor with an FMX transmission three speed.
Car has a newer base coat/cure clear coat with a factory correct Corinthian White color.
Car has all new brakes. From Master Cylinder to new brake booster to all new shoes and spring kits and wheel cylinders.
The entire front end was replaced also. From ball joints, pper and lower, o new springs to center link to bushings and shocks all round car. Believe me that is not an easy job nor a cheap one!
The engine was rebuilt by previous owner and I had the heads rebuilt this summer. New Edelbrock Carb, ew alternator, istributor MSD, park plugs and wires and fluids.Radiator was boiled cleaned and pressure tested. Hoses are new. Brand new exhaust that's 2.5 inch with Flowmaster mufflers series 40 and new resonators help muffle and quiets the cars exhaust NOT loud!!!!!Engine compartment is highly detailed as well as trunk for that factory correct look.
Car rolls on newer white wall tires and factory hubcaps correct for 1963. Trunk has had the factory trunk dress up kit and is rust free and SOLID as well as floorboards.Inside of the car has had thousands invested to restore this cars factory fresh look in correct cinyl textured red seat skins front and back. New correct red rug and new door panels with new trim to attach them.The windshield does NOT have a crack and is not hazy.Heater blows warm air due to me having the heater core replaced and oiled all the cables to move warm air about through the ducts.The whole car has been on a car lift and undercoated. Rear end and rear saddle springs were sanded and cleaned and detailed in black. New rear shocks were installed after.
An auto electrician was called in from Superior Automotive to go over and check all lights, urn signals and connections for proper brightness. New battery too. E brake was gone over and lubed and releases properly.I bought a new remote mirror which is on car and also installed new chrome door sills and NEW red Thunderbird floor mats. Car also has correct fender Sports Roadster Emblems on each fender.This car has been under restoration for 3 years. 1 year of it was spent at Superior Automotive in Bellevue.I have a large stack of receipts on what has been done at the shop as well as parts outlets for Thunderbird parts.This car is a Parade Car meaning this car has no top. Chip Foose on Overhauling did a similar build which fueled this one. An amazing job of fabricating the Roadster look was pain stakingly reproduced and achieved. No one waving to you down the street will ever know this isn't a real Thunderbird Roadster.The car comes in AS IS condition with no expressed guarantees.I have tried, s always, o describe this car, nd any car I sell, n the best possible way to better ensure satisfaction and expectation to what your purchasing sight unseen.PLEASE feel free to ASK any questions and concerns about the car and or ask for photos that I had not provided.

Those SERIOUS about car can speak with Alan down at Superior Automovtive about work performed at his shop.I wish I could keep every car I restore but I'm always looking for the next project to tackle.I do know of a real Roadster Tonneau Sport Fiberglass Top which would really complete the car but I just don't have the funds to buy but I would pass phone number to next buyer so he could sell top to you!If you need help in shipping the car I have a very good and reliable auto transport company I use and it's Royal Auto Transport.
